Squeezing dangerously up the crowded ‘190’ bus had become an early morning routine for Adam Koh. On good days, he would twist and turn in ways such that his arms would not brush itself against any lady's breast in a vaguely indecent manner (oh how he remembers that fateful day with the voluptuous office girl). On bad days, he would twist and turn in ways that the guy beside would not be able touch him in a vaguely indecent manner (oh how he hopes to forget the day that should
It's 'Pink Dot season' and the opinions for and against the event have been appearing in equal amounts on my social media feeds. I guess I happen to have on Facebook almost an equal amount of friends that are 'for' and 'against' homosexuality / LGBT Communities. Where does that leave me though? To whom / which group should I then identify with? Can I ever co-exist in this world as a Christian with very good Gay friends? Writing helps (and forces) me to think, so I wrote. SPEC
Brilliance is the ability to explain relatively complex issues with the simplest ideas, and this is what this hilarious 2min51sec video has skilfully epitomized as it explains consensual sex.

But I know that magic is real. You see, these days, I would sometimes wake
“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” - Cesar A. Cruz This is a quote that many artists hold dear. I suspect that this is because it resonates deeply by giving ‘meaning’ to what the function of their art is for. It creates value for the work of the artist. To some, like me, it is a standard to aspire to. When I first saw this quote, I instantly felt a certain affinity with it. However, as I continued to mull on the words, I began to wonder if the quo
This was originally written as a speech for my wedding. I am publishing this on my blog for posterity. When I was 15 years and 10 months old, just about a month or two before my birthday, my father pulled me aside and told me that he was going to bring me out for shopping because he wanted to buy me a ring. In my pubescent 16-year-old mind at that time, I thought it was a little bit lame: a father giving his son jewelry. To make things ‘worse’, he went on to explain that the
